Quick Tip: Using the 2 Second Timer Instead of a Cable Release

Using the Timer Function to Make a Crisp Image

Have you ever been out making a photo when you realized that your cable release was at home? You want to have your hands off of the camera so that the little camera shake does not ruin your photo. What do you do? A quick and easy tip is to use the timer function of your camera. You can use the two or ten second timer so that when the exposure is made your hands are off the camera. I love this so much that my cable release does not even go with me anymore on trips when I know that I will be under 30 seconds of shooting. If you are shooting an HDR image, or just bracketing it will fire all of the frames that you selected if you have continuous shooting on. This is just a quick tip that might save you out in the field one day.
